Dan Stevens has received his share of attention thanks to the box office hit Beauty and the Beast and critically acclaimed FX series Legion. He also gives a great performance in The Ticket, a drama which hits Blu-ray and DVD June 6th via Shout! Factory.
After miraculously regaining his vision, James (Stevens) wants to makeover his current life by climbing up the corporate ladder and buying a new home. James’ ravenous pursuit of success leads to complications with his loving wife (Malin Akerman) and best friend (and co-worker) Bob (Oliver Platt). Halt and Catch Fire’s Kerry Bishe is James’ co-worker Jessica, a woman who’s drawn to James’ newly ambitious attitude.
The Ticket is a subtly told drama that, thanks to its rich and nuanced performances, never devolves into a preachy look at the loss of a man’s faith. Director Ido Fluk’s meticulous approach to James’ journey, beautifully rendered in the film’s closing moments, is also another reason to check this movie out.
The Blu-ray and DVD versions comes with audio commentary from Fluk and writer Sharon Mashihi and the original theatrical trailer. The Ticket can be ordered by visiting ShoutFactory.com.
